Sacramento-area resident and raw chef, Andi Griffith, has published a book called The Fruits and Greens Diet: A 10 Step Guide for a Lifetime of Dietary Health. This quick-to-read book with a relaxed conversational writing style demystifies a raw food diet by tackling often-asked questions and presenting how to transition to a healthy diet in clear easy steps. It also lists 50 recipes, including chef Andi’s prize-winning Chocolate Raspberry Ganache (1st place at the 2008 Vibrant Living Expo).
Dr. Carl Neeley of Biomechanics Chiropractic Clinic said, “Today most people shop for convenience… The Fruits and Greens Diet will dramatically improve their lives by giving them healthy nutrition, fiber, and a wonderful variety of tasty meals that can be easily prepared and that taste wonderful.”
Cherie Soria, director of Living Lights Culinary Institute and author of Raw Food Revolution Diet also said, “The Fruits and Greens Diet is a treasure trove of helpful information that will make it easier for anyone who wants to add more fresh fruits and vegetables to their diet and live a healthier, more vibrant life. Andi’s recipes are delicious, easy to follow, and use ingredients that are familiar. I can enthusiastically recommend this book to anyone, whether they are just starting out on a healthy journey or are a long time raw enthusiast – it has something for everyone.”
